Five Lessons From The New England Patriots For Long Term Law School Success

Bloomberg, What the Patriots Can Teach Us About Business:

Patriots[The New England Patriots have] won six Super Bowl titles, matching the record held by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it has done so in less than 20 years. As notable, the Patriots have been so consistently successful that they had not had to play in the first round of the playoffs since 2009; and since then, until this season, they had never failed to make it to at least the divisional round of the playoffs. ...

[T]he Patriots excelled continuously. Among the many reasons for this, five have stood out for me consistently and are extremely relevant for sustained business success:

  1. Mid-course adjustments ...
  2. Hard work ...
  3. Personnel management ...
  4. Perfecting the simple yet devastating ...
  5. Constructive paranoia ... The team never seemed to relax or become complacent. Discipline was paramount, enforced by a seemingly never-compromising Belichick.
